Hi everyone.

Hi. My name's Lesley and I am in the process of setting up my own HR consultancy in the Swindon area.

I have over 20 years experience within a large organisation, working in a variety of generalist HR roles so I really think that I have a lot to offer smaller business who don't have the resource or need for dedicated HR support (or larger businesses who need a bit of extra support from time to time for that matter!).

I still have a lot to do and think about before the business goes live, but as I am currently working notice, I have the luxury of thinking and planning time.

I'll be updating my profile and joining a couple of meetings over the next few weeks so I look forward to meeting some of you soon.

Hi Lesley - welcome aboard... you're a bit far from my part of the world (the North West); but I joined relatively recently (October) and have really enjoyed it.  You'll reap what you sow, and it'll likely not be instant... but you'll have good fun along the way!  

If you can make some meetings whilst on your notice, then do... you'll also meet people who can help and advise along the way.

Thanks Craig. I must admit I'm having fun already. There is so much to think about and do that my poor little brain is getting quite a work out!

Hey Lesley! 


I left my full time job to pursue my first company going solo a few years back. If you want to have a chat for any reassurance or advice please do give me a message/call. I am always happy to chat. I have been through a lot in the past few years so know how hard it can be!
